Located in the northwest of Bolivia, this area consists of a full array of tropical ecosystems. Madidi’s vast wilderness area encompasses unparalleled biological diversity ranging from mountain cloud forest to dry tropical forest, humid lowland rainforest to savannah, wild rivers to lakes. It is the habitat of more than 1.000 species of birds, 44% of all new world species of mammals, and an estimated 38% of neotropical amphibians. The tropical Andes where Madidi is located, is also a globally critical hotspot of endemic plants.

In trekking we consider as well those 6 difficulties explained above but we transferred the situation to the activity of the trek. The only remarkable difference exists in the altitude: The true climbing activity starts at over 5000 m high but the trekking activity runs from 1500 m high up to 5150 m high.
